[Results link added] Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies took their first Southern Athletics League fixture of the season at Finsbury Park, narrowly beating St Albans. Hosts Highgate were not as strong as they may have been had their home track been available and finished third, ahead of Barnet&District and Mornington Chasers. The difficulty of getting a team out over Easter weekend was highlighted by Loughton not even fielding a team.
WGEL started very strongly, winning the first 11 events they contested with the majority also including B string wins. Setting the ball rolling, Iris Verweij coasted round the 400h in her first race for the club (also taking the 100h and HJ later on). John Pride was similarly comfortable in his 400h, his first race since 2010.
